he was a dirty, dirty, old man

this is a portrait of charles bukowski i did after reading a collection of his short stories. apparently his motto and epitaph is... don't try. well, i did, and i'm pretty happy with the result.


spare change

here's an illustration i made in response to a request. the idea was for an urban setting and some sort of interaction between class (rich and poor). there so many ways to approach this sort of topic, but instead of saying something direct about the tragedy of the poor or homeless or the vanity and self centered-ness of most people, i went for a more objective take on the situation. i'm pretty happy with it, though the image is 18x13 or something in person so there are a few weird areas where i had to patch different scans together.
